Track and trace Learners results. What do SCORM compliance, AICC, XAPI and CMI5 mean?

Challenge to Learn

Do you want to buy a LMS or an authoring tool and are you wondering what the best option is for tracking the results of your learners? SCORM is a standard in e-Learning that makes it possible to track and trace the results of your learners in a Learning Management system (LMS).

Day 2 @LSCON, Nice keynote and I finally understand TinCan, Experience API, Scorm, ADL, IACC and CMI-5…….

Challenge to Learn

Later on the ADL was formed and they wanted a more extended standard, based on the AICC specs. So the ADL developed Scorm in a different (technical) way and we ended up with two standards. Both the ADL and AICC where working on a new generation of standards. ADL announced TinCan (version one will be out shortly) and the AICC worked on CMI-5. Day 2 of the conference. I started the day with the keynote session, before the keynote some announcements were made.

Choosing Mobile Learning Solutions Using Standards

JCA Solutions

With a wider variety of ways we could deliver learning experiences, combined with the desire to support and track performance, things had to change. That could lead to some SCORM tracking issues. Another alternative would be performance tracking or real time evaluation tool.

Project Tincan: What should SCORM 2.0 look like?: Participate!

Challenge to Learn

They do a project for the ADL to investigate what the next version of SCORM should look like. SCORM is the standard of the e-Learning industry and now and then we say less nice things about it, but it is our guarantee (most of the times) that content from our authoring systems will actually run in most LMS, and that the learners progress and results are tracked and reported. Today I was interviewed by Ben Clarck from Rustici software.

Traditional vendors are largely adopting at the SCORM parity level and using Tin Can as a better way to track formal training programs. I think we mostly know how to track informal learning with Tin Can now, but there is still a long way to go in making useful information out of all that data. Tracking should be opt-in when possible. When asking a question about compliance training, we will outfit the compliance violation tracking system to notify us when violations occur.

Part One: How We Decide to Do Work

Experience API

A couple of days ago, I wrote about the state of ADL and Rustici Software’s take on it. We wrapped a little bit of code and interface around our core product (SCORM Engine), labeled it SCORM Test Track, and shared it. ADL’s guiding hand. And to ADL, would you approve of that?

Real (e)Learning Heroes

Clark Quinn

The Department of Defense’s ADL initiative decided upon a version, to move things forward, and thus was born SCORM. And if not, there’s always the ADL to wield the ‘800 lb gorilla’ argument. This standard enables tracking and analytics beyond the course.

SCORM was not enough to track user/learner progress. It was originally a research project that was awarded to Rustici Software by ADL. It was originally a research project that was awarded to Rustici Software by ADL. xAPI ensures that informal learning is tracked.

What is the AICC Standard and How is it Relevant to My eLearning Plan?

Docebo

When the AICC disbanded, they transferred the CMI-5 project to the Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) Initiative to ensure continued access to all of your training content. The AICC is dissolved, but having an LMS that supports AICC is still crucial.

Why the Experience API (xAPI) Is Crucial to Your eLearning Success

Trivantis

The Experience API (xAPI) is an updated standard for tracking eLearning; it shows a more complete picture of your learners’ activity than SCORM does. Years later, when SCORM couldn’t do everything needed, the ADL asked Rustici Software to create an updated standard: The Experience API or xAPI.

ADL, or Advanced Distributive Learning , is the government agency behind the spec. The SCORM API is tested and reliable for tracking of basic information such as course completion, time spent taking a course, completion date, and post-test score. Tin Can. Experience. TIN CAN!

Learning Visions

For specific user date on devices and more - you need to enable what they call "user tracking" -- although google terms don't allow you to send personal informaiton e.g You can give a unique token to each user and it will track those users (although not personal data). So you can track things like which device someone started a program on and if they moved to a tablet and then if they moved back…you can see resolution and pixel depth.

What is xAPI?

LearnUpon

While the SCORM standard isn’t going anywhere soon, xAPI has redefined some of the fundamental practices of tracking learning experiences. The SCORM specification was introduced by ADL in 1999. The major difference between xAPI and SCORM content is the type of learning each can track.

Profile Recipes vs. xAPI Profiles

Experience API

The “profile”, as it relates to the Registry, was intended as an abstract concept that allowed a user to “request” a namespace, under which they could track the items in their information model, and specifically, where they could link one or more recipes. An “ xAPI profile ” is a newer concept, created by ADL in a more formal way through their BAA process. What’s the difference between profile recipes and xAPI profiles?

What is Cmi5? A new set of rules for xAPI

LearnUpon

Ben Clark of Rustici Software has described how cmi5 augments xAPI as follows: “xAPI is wide open, there’s so much this standard can do that people don’t know what to expect out of it and they don’t know how to track certain things consistently.

Day 5: xAPI and more – what next for SCORM?

On day one of our series, we learned that AICC (Aviation Industry Computer-Based-Training Committee) can be considered the first eLearning standard, used to track how learners progress through course content. Moving beyond those limitations, xAPI can track learning in almost any context.

Moving and receiving xAPI data in an LRS rich environment

Experience API

LMSs: LMSs are used to play and track eLearning content and can often allow users to analyze the data they play. The Brothers Donnelly are using Zapier and Watershed to track Slack conversations and Github commits, which they correlate to learning that happens via SCORM Cloud.

SCORM vs. LTI: what’s the difference?

Rustici Software

To put it simply, the main difference between LTI and SCORM is that LTI is focused on connecting learning systems, whereas SCORM is focused on launching training content and tracking interactions. SCORM is focused on launching training content and tracking interactions. SCORM stands for Shareable Content Object Reference Model and it was developed, and is now managed, by Advanced Distributed Learning Initiative (ADL) to support the Department of Defense.

The ongoing work of learning standards

Litmos

The Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) initiative of the Department of Defense finally had enough. The ADL provided compliance testing, so that content and systems could be validated for interoperability. The goal is to track a richer suite of information about behaviors.

This standard is being developed by Rustici Software (with a world-wide active community participating and contributing) for Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) – the keepers of SCORM. However, ‘Experience API’ is ADL’s official name for this standard.

SCORM vs. Tin Can (xAPI): which is right for your LMS?

What is Tin Can?

eFront

ADL (the keepers of SCORM) is the steward of this new specification aka “the next generation of SCORM.”. Both SCORM and Tin Can API allow track completion; track time; track pass/fail; and report a single score. Providers have come to realize that learning experiences happen everywhere (not just in the LMS) and Tin Can adopters want to give their users the ability to easily track these experiences.
